    primal take-out

    Shop Now
    Hi all,

    I have a question about eating out. The hubby is out of town and the schedule's a little tight this week. I would love to pick up take-out on the way home tomorrow. It's just me and the cavebabies (age 1 1/2 and 3). Any suggestions? We eat gluten-free and mostly primal at home -- the girls have some GF grain foods sometimes.

    Thanks!

    Also, does any know if there are Indian food options?

    Most grocery stores will have a prepared foods section. It's super-easy to pick up some prepared salad and already cooked meat. As for stuff that will get delivered to your door, that I don't know.

    Anywhere that sells meat, IMO. Steak houses, BBQ pits. I am in similiar position as OP and just called hubs to see if he would mind if Grokling & I went for some BBQ tonight

    Isn't BBQ sugary, though?

    Indian! Tandoori mixed grill = a ton of meat with no mystery sauces. I'm also partial to saag paneer (spinach, cheese, and a TON of butter). (Paneer is a strange non-melty cheese, the consistency is about that of tofu.) Saag with any kind of meat is also good if you don't like paneer.

    Why are we afraid of sugar? I must be missing something if we can't have sugar, honey, maple syrup, or agave. What the heck do you sweeten stuff with? I thought it was fine in moderation.

    When we go to BBQ joints, I order it without the sauce. Also, one of our fave BBQ places has a mustard BBQ sauce with little to no sugar. I go for that or none. Some dry rubs will contain sugar - usually not in huge amounts. Sometimes I just call that part of my 20% if I'm craving some good BBQ.

    @dr bork bork: In moderation, sure, it's fine. Even Mark puts sugar in his coffee. But a lot of BBQ sauce has HFCS as one of the first ingredients - ew!

    Mostly I sweeten stuff with honey or stevia, but that's rare. My palate for sweet stuff is such that a grapefruit doesn't need sweetened.

    @OP: when we eat out, it's usually chipotle. you could pre-order it & pick it up on the way home. OR, grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery. YUM.

    I doubt it's gluten free but one of our epic cheatish meals are naked "Jamaican hot" wings from a local wing delivery place. So un- breaded and swimming in hot hot hot jerk sauce. So good. A lot of the jarred jerk sauce has a bit of brown sugar but pretty clean otherwise.

    Great ideas... I might google Indian to be sure. The grocery store might be good, too. I'm gluten-intolerant, so eating out can be limiting. I love carolina barbecue, but no can do. Our local place tells us there's no gluten in the things I've ordered, but I have a fun 4-day reaction anyway. I guess it's a cross-contamination issue.
